What is a hole saw arbor and its applications

A hole saw is a type of drilling bit used to drill a circular hole of broader diameter than most traditional bits would typically create.

Many different types of hole saw bits are available from a good range of hardware stockists - almost as many sorts as regular drill bits, actually - including versions manufactured to be used on most kinds of sheet materials. Additionally to general-purpose hole cutting attachments,

How to use hole saws

When handling different types of materials (including natural and engineered timbers, glass, plastic, ceramics, and metal), you need to choose different types of hole saws - and sometimes employ slightly different drilling techniques - to realize the neat, clean-cut, professional-looking results.

Tips for Using Hole Saw Arbor

  • Always confirm you're using an appropriately powerful drill for hole cutting
  • Never plan to drill holes through masonry or heavier timber with a battery-operated drill
  • Always wear suitable PPE safety wear before beginning to use a hole saw. As a minimum, this could always include proper goggles or glasses, an appropriate dust mask for the fabric being cut, and suitable quality work gloves
  • Never wear loose clothing - like baggy sleeves or dangling jewelry - that would get snagged within the hole saw, and always tie back long hair securely
  • Regardless of the fabric or surface you're performing on, never attempt to force the drilling bit through any faster than it wants to travel 
  • Gentle, consistent pressure is vital to achieving a neat, perfectly round hole
  • Always begin slowly and gradually increase rotation speed as you go
  • Apart from your drill's facility rating, the most limiting thing in terms of hole depth will often be the precise design of the opening cutter, especially how it's found out to affect the fabric being removed.

Thus, the smaller hole saw acts because the guide or arbor bit (sized to the overall hole width), and therefore the larger attachment then cuts a replacement, giant hole around it.

Consider using an adjunct like a dust cowl to hide the opening saw a bit while in use, and stop excessive debris spillage when boring out large holes.
